The stars of Fast and the Furious were spotted arriving in Rio De Janeiro on Wednesday (November 3) to begin filming Fast Five, the fifth film in the successful series.

And judging by actor Paul Walker‘s bare and wet chest, it didn’t take long for them to get acquainted with the airport, hotel or beach.

Jordana Brewster, meanwhile, showed off her enviable curves in a teeny tiny patterned bikini, reclining on a towel spread out on the golden sand.

Despite arriving with a sizeable entourage of crew members the two stars seemed to gravitate towards each other, moving their towels so they were face to face as they talked.

In Fast Five, Vin Diesel‘s character Toretto has been recently freed from jail by Brian O’Conner (played by Paul), they flee the country and assemble a team of their friends and fellow elite drivers to confront a corrupt businessman (played by Joaquim de Almeida) who wants them dead, while at the same time avoiding capture by a relentless federal agent (played by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.)

The action packed flick is filming in Brazil as well as Puerto Rico, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

The movie’s producer, Neal H. Morris recently revealed that there will also be a sixth instalment in the popular franchise, which is currently being developed and will film back to back with the current project.

Fast Five is scheduled to be released nationwide on June 10, 2011.

Eva is no stranger to philanthropy. She was named ‘Philanthropist of the Year’ by Hollywood Reporter in 2009 for giving back to the community.

Padres El Contra Cancer is just one of the many charities she has become involved with in the past few years. Eva also supports the Clothes Off Our Back Foundation, the National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children, the National Stroke Association, Project HOME and St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

She even started her own charity in 2006 called Eva’s Heroes, which helps developmentally disabled children.
